Well all, I have been watching just not threading, so no I did not dissapear. I had the WLS on August 26 this year. I am surprised at how much I can eat. First off-with all the experiements there isn't anything that upsets my tummy, unfortunatly not even sweets. I'm still a good girl though. What troubles me is how much I can eat. I can eat a frozen dinner-usually south beach diet or WW in one sitting and I can also drink water with it (about 2 cups-while I eat). I don't struggle with it-I have never had to eat slow yet-not even right after surgery. I do get full however-not stuffed. I have never had dumping, any form of it. It almost seems like I didn't have the surgery. Except for the fact I eat alot less and I'm full and I have scars. I have lost 50 pounds since the post surgery, so I know its working. I'm just curious if anyone else has had it this easy. I'm actually kind of dissapointed, I wanted it to be hard and I wanted to struggle to make the right choices. I'm gratefull to not be going through what so many of you have-I just gotta wonder if being able to eat so much is normal. Thanks for any input you might have. My doctor is out on deployment, but when he gets back I will be asking him too.
